 Choosing an Interior Painting Company for Hillandale MD

Choosing a new paint color for the interior of your Hillandale home can be intimidating... but what about choosing a painting contractor? In both cases, making a rash choice can leave you with regrets. When it comes to color choice, you can paint a sample patch on a wall and see how you like it. What can you do when choosing a Hillandale interior painter? How can you make sure you end up with an painting company you will love?

Choosing an interior house painter takes a bit of effort, but the results are worth it! Once you have made a choice, you know you can confidently call them again and expect great things. Follow the steps below, and you are likely to end up with a winner!

Compiling a List of Hillandale Painters

The first stage of finding an excellent interior painting company involves making a longer list of potential options. A good place to start is with asking your neighbors, co-workers and family in the Hillandale area, so you can find out who they have worked with, and whether or not they recommend them.

Another obvious method is to take a look online. A quick search for Hillandale interior painters will lead to plenty of options. Browse the results there, and if any look promising, add them to your list.

Creating a Short List

Once you have your longer list, you want to trim it down to the three or four interior painters that look the best. The references from your Hillandale neighbors can help with this, and online reviews are also an excellent resource. Google, Yelp, Angie's List, HomeAdvisor, and other similar sites can help you narrow down the choices.

Don't get spooked by one or two negative reviews. Even the best painters end up with a couple unhappy clients, unfortunately. Additionally, competitors will sometimes maliciously leave horrible reviews under false names. Instead, look for patterns in the reviews, and select the companies that have the best overall client feedback.

Another way you can vet a house painter is by browsing their website. Is it professional looking? Do they have actual project photos? What can you learn about the company history? For example, a family-owned painting company that has been serving an area for multiple generations is likely to care about their reputation and about giving thorough customer satisfaction.

Interviewing Your Potential House Painters

Now that your list is narrowed down, it's time to start contacting the candidates. Contact the painting companies and ask them for an interior painting estimate. Throughout the process, pay attention to their professionalism and customer service:

  • Is their communication polite and responsive?
  • Do they show up on time for the estimate?
  • Do they have company vehicles, uniforms, and letterhead?
  • Are they attentive and helpful, or pushy and rushing?

As the estimates come in, do not just look at the bottom line. Instead, look at the details. How much surface preparation will they do? What is the quality of the paint they will use? How many coats of paint will they apply? Which surfaces are included or excluded? These details are much more important than saving a few dollars.

Finally, ask about the company's documentation and policies. Are they a licensed contractor here in Maryland? Do they have liability insurance and Worker's Compensation? Don't hesitate to ask for proof of these things. Also, do they have a guarantee on their work? If so, does it cover materials only, or materials and labor?

Time to Make a Choice!

With all that information in hand, you can make an informed, confident choice about your Hillandale interior painting company. If, however, you still have any hesitancy, there is another low-risk way to try out a local painter. You can hire them for a small job such as a hall bathroom or a guest bedroom, and see how the project goes. A reputable painting company will put just as much care and attention to detail into a small project as they will a large one.

One service that some interior painters offer is called Painter-for-a-Day. This gives you the opportunity to hire a professional house painter for 8 hours of labor at a reasonable flat rate. That way, you can get a feel for a company on a small scale before hiring them for a larger scale project.

Our Happy Customers

Interior Residential Painting McLean,VA.

Dave -

Just a note to let you know that Juan Maldonado did a very nice job for us last week. He was easy to have around and communicated well. It was a job made up of many little jobs and that’s sometimes hard to organize, but he did it! He had creative ideas when there were challenges and he always completed the project.

Thanks for getting it all done before the college party here this past Monday.

Happy Father’s Day!



Note of Commendation


We want to commend Juan, Caesar, and Eric for the excellent paint job they did at our residence during the week of 14 November 2016. The crew did outstanding work in the painting of our upstairs hallway and adjacent entranceways and niches. Their attention to detail combined with their skillful application of unique color accents and faux painting techniques has given the area done a grand appearance. Their work is the reason why when it comes to excellence, we select Williams Painting.

F & C

The quality of the workmanship.

We just had our beautiful historic townhouse painted by Dave with Juan Maldonado as our foreman. The house is absolutely beautiful. The quality of the workmanship, customer service, and professionalism was exceptional. Thank you Dave, Juan and your crew for restoring this beautiful building to its glory. You are truly the best.


Great Job!!!

I just wanted to say Thank You to Dagoberto Machado for doing such a great job painting my master bathroom. Dagoberto took great care to ensure that everything was covered and protected prior to painting. He worked all day and the results are just lovely. I have requested him specifically in the past for another inside paint job, and will not hesitate to call on him again. Great Job!!!


Review on a Recent Work

They were very pleasant to work with and have around.

I was very happy with the work.They were extremely focused on making sure I was happy with everything and took extra care to make things perfect.

I would happily have them back again and want to thank you for sending such a great crew to my home!

A Review for Franklin and Edwin

Franklin and Edwin just completed a job on our house, and I wanted to let you know how superb their performance was.

Every day they were on time, they worked hard, and they were meticulous in cleaning up. Franklin always went to us with any questions he had; he never just assumed he knew what we would want.

They were a credit to Williams Professional Painting — providing the high-quality service that we have come to expect from Williams.

Please let them know how pleased we were with their work.

Thank you.


Williams Professional Painting

Hi Dave and Lisa,

Jennifer and I want to thank you both very much for the great painting job that transformed our house to this century (Jennifer's words:)

Dogberto and Jorge did a a fantastic job with all the wall/ceiling preparation, attention to detail, painting, and daily cleanups.We appreciate all they did for us.


I'll be sure to recommend this company and the services of Rick and Bryan to all of my friends.

I cold called Williams Professional Painting while searching for painters for my new condo in DC to obtain a quote. I was able to promptly talk to Rick Williams on the phone and he was extremely responsive and reasonable. I told him I recently purchased a condo and wanted to repaint everything prior to moving in. He sent an estimator out to my condo. The estimator, Jose, showed up on time and was extremely courteous, even removed his shoes prior to entering my condo. He took measurements of the rooms and recommended different types of paints for the rooms. I discussed with Rick that I needed the job done in two days and he said it wouldn't be a problem. His crew led by foreman Bryan arrived on time and was also extremely courteous and professional. Their #1 priority seems to be getting the job done correctly. Some of my paint colors were rather dark for accent walls and although my contract said 2 coats of paint, Bryan used 3 coats to ensure that the accent walls were painted properly.

Rick's team kept their word and finished my project in 2 days, even though it required bringing in a few extra painters, they still did not lapse their deadline. In the end, I am glad I hired Williams Professional Painting and did not take on this task myself or hire hourly help to assist me to paint. I'll be sure to recommend this company and the services of Rick and Bryan to all of my friends.


Thanks for another great painting and repair job.

Carlos finished up and looking good. Thanks for another great painting and repair job.

A very pleased client from Alexandria, VA


Les did outstanding work - looks brand new. He went out of his way to research the exact match on paint, and also astutely noted that he probably needed to ensure the paint work he did after refinishing the seams coalesced with the balance of the hallway paint. I am very pleased, and you would be too. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


Thanks for the good work - you are truly "professional"!

Franklin and his crew (Carlos, Jorge, JB, and Daniel) did an outstanding job painting the exterior trim on our house.With it raining almost every day this month, they managed to get the work finished by staying until after 7pm on clear days and working all day one Saturday.The work quality was excellent, they respected the interior of our house and always wore foot protection, and they kept us informed about when they were coming and when they couldn't due to the weather.They were very professional and committed to getting the work done and done right.Our thanks to the entire crew!We definitely will recommend Williams for any painting job and will use them again on our next (hopefully interior) painting project.

Thanks for the good work - you are truly "professional"!

Williams Professional Painting Delivered!

Hi Rick,

I just wanted to commend your team for doing a great job. Cristian and Walter were prompt, did a great job painting a very tall wall that I would be too scared to scale myself, and left everything clean. The colors are exactly as I wanted them, also thanks to Lisa's good work at matching the Ralph Lauren colors that I liked. I am very excited about moving into my new condo with colors that make it a space that is uniquely mine.

I am glad that your company was able to handle my job very quickly; this was absolutely no-hassle in terms of scheduling. Right now, that kind of service was what I needed, and Williams Professional Painting delivered. Please be sure to recognize Cristian, Walter, Lisa, and anyone else on the team who contributed to make this a seamless experience for me. And thank you for providing benefits for your employees and treating them well.

Best regards,


An Exterior and Interior Painting Project.

Bryan Pinto did an excellent job at my house with exterior and interior painting plus some carpentry. The quality of his work was outstanding, he was thorough, and did an excellent job of keeping everything clean. Even with the sanding, he didn't leave a speck of dust.



Great Job!

The Foreman was Walter. They showed up on time, did a fantastic job.

Great job!


Interior Quality Painting Fairfax Virginia

Dear Rick,

This is a long overdue comment regarding the services Williams Professional Painting provided in painting our home in Fairfax.

First of all it was a pleasure to work with you, Rick, on the estimate, and we felt the price you quoted us was very reasonable for the scope of the job.

I lost the card your painters gave me in the chaos of packing the house – so unfortunately I don’t remember their names, but they were great and I would be happy to have

them in our home again!

The painters were here each day well before the time to start. They were extremely courteous, and usually they left things cleaner than they found them.

We were in chaos trying to prepare for moving, but they were very accommodating; letting me know I got to choose which room they would work on on any given day

so I could stay one room ahead of them clearing out clutter.

As for the quality of the painting it was very good!

I have recommended Williams to our Realtor and if we were staying in the area and needed painting again I would not hesitate to use Williams.

Thank you so much for your excellent service!


They always picked up and cleaned up before leaving for the day


Please pass on to the appropriate people at Williams how pleased we are with the painting of our house at 8977 Fort Hunt Rd. Christian and Daniel were terrific, very professional, courteous and did an outstanding job. They always picked up and cleaned up before leaving for the day and made sure we understood the order and progress which had been made. Christian managed the work in an organized fashion and made certain we were satisfied with their work. They are both an asset to the company.
